Liberty Fest, Farmers Branch

Today was the second day of the annual three-day Liberty Fest held at Farmers Branch, Texas. I came to know about the fest through some posters and decided to participate. Today's highlights were an outdoor expo which featured a lot of recreational vehicle marketers, two artificial outdoor rock climbing walls, a micro-mini petting zoo with all the farm animals, such as chicken, rabbits, pigs, calf, and a llama. These animals are so common in small towns and some areas of Indian cities but very very rare in US cities. The only place American-born children get to see live animals other than dogs, cats and fish.
My favorite section of the event was of course the car and motorcycle show featuring a wide array of metal steeds and monsters. I have personally almost given up the hope of ever riding a motorcycle again, but when I see a beautiful set of wheels I can't help but take a closer look and oogle at it.
Anyway enough of my chatter... here are some pictures of the Liberty fest.

More Pictures of Mineral Wells

I haven't shared all the pictures of our recent trip to Mineral Wells State Park, TX. This park is one of the closest locations where one can see some kind of hilly terrain, and rocks that can be climbed. The park is beautiful right now and with weather not having heated up too much the colorful flowers, insects, and other flora and fauna make it a great place to visit.

Webhosting for just $10

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Nexx Online. All opinions are 100% mine.

Nexxbannernoflash When internet became prevalent the cost of website hosting was prohibitive. This prevented most of the small and some medium businesses from hosting their own websites. Then came the era of free website hosting, free domain registration, free designing, etc, etc. That wave saw everyone getting onto the internet bandwagon hoping to make it big, only to realize that making money off the internet is not so easy.

Well now there seems to be maturity among internet service providers, website hosts and businesses getting online. The new has ushered a new era of professional service providers whose costs are steadily increasing. Small businesses who were earlier not shy of going online are beginning to wonder about the economics of website hosting.

I believe the wave of internet era would be technologies and companies that offer Unlimited Web Hosting for a nominal cost that is not too expensive. The new plan known as Nexx hosting plan a one year unlimited web hosting plan and one free .COM domain registration for just $10.

That is simply amazing in an era where the cheapest hosting costs in the range of $50-100 year with a lot of restrictions. Unlimited space, bandwidth, email, 27/7 Customer Support and as icing on the cake is two $50 credits for Google Adwords and Facebook ads. This is something every small business owner, blogger, individual, who wants a web presence, should consider.

Nexx Web Hosting supports all the latest applications such as Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal and Zen Cart and offers one click installation on all these.

For those who are all keyed up and want to avail this $10 promotion the code to use SPARK10

Mineral Wells State Park Visit

Sunday was pretty eventful, visited one more state park in the vast state of Texas and this time it was closer home... about 100 miles south west. The park is named after the city of Mineral Wells which was a thriving spa, health resort, town famous for its fresh water resources. At its peak the town's water was known to cure all human diseases and people traveled to this little town to spend few weeks rejuvenating themselves. Well that was probably more than a century ago. Today the town is just another small town in Texas with a large ranching community and tourism that the State park draws. Well this is the closest location from DFW metro area for rock climbing, some hill hiking and of course swimming and wildlife watching.
Here are some pictures of the location and I will post further about what we did in the state park soon.
